One of my favorite Portland traditions is the waterfront concert by the Oregon Symphony. In my mind, going to this concert was a key experience validating that we had really moved back to Portland. We thought we would only be albe to go for the early portion and so we could get the kids to bed. However, my Mom ended up coming into town and babysitting for us, so Carolyn and I had stayed the whole time. We found Becca who had extra space so we could sit closer than we ever have before. It was as good as I remembered it being and combined with the warm weather made for a fantastic evening.
